Draxon Payne is a character role-played by Renegade93TV
Growing up Draxon faced abusive behavior from the people who should love him unconditionally. His mother drank like a fish does water, and his father was a chronic drug user. The only person in his life that brought him any sort of happiness was his sister, Synn. They did everything together as the two were inseparable. Draxon hasn't always been the strong and bold type he used to be a scrawny toothpick kid so it was fairly easy to push him around. His uncle, Patrick Turner, took notice of this, and felt the urge to help as Draxon was one of his favorite nephews so he took him under his wing and taught him how to get stronger, and fight. Finally one day when Draxon's parents tried to come at Synn in a hostile way Draxon snapped, and attacked his parents enough to subdue them in revenge for the times they have done it to him as well. It was then Draxon realized Synn, and he can not continue to live with their parents anymore as it will get progressively worse as time goes on.
Draxon then took Synn with him to their Uncle's house to beg him to let them move so they may get away from what they described to be "Hell on Earth". Luckily their Uncle Patrick loved them both as if they were his own children, and gladly said yes to them moving in. Patrick began teaching the two everything he knew so Draxon, and Synn could have a better future for themselves.
Then the summer of 1999 hit and the fear of Y2K was on the rise. People feared that it was the end of the world, and little did the country know so did the government. They were scared to the point where the government started a secret program called, “The Project of Tomorrow” and this project would take hand picked people from society, and place them into an underground bunker that is nuclear proof giving them supplies to survive in the bunker for years to come. The goal with these people selected was to help repopulate during, and after Y2K so civilization can continue to grow. Draxon, and Synn’s uncle, was selected to go into this underground bunker to lead the people also selected to pass on his vast knowledge of survival skills, and book smarts. When their uncle was selected a government official came over to the house to tell Patrick (Draxon and Synn’s uncle) the news he was delighted to see children at the thought of the future. It was then the government official offered spots in the bunker for Draxon, and Synn. Patrick was very happy to hear the news, and the offer for Draxon, and Synn now he doesn’t have to worry about sending them back to their parents.
Time In The Bunker
Patrick really enjoyed leading this large group of people, and he took it in great pride that he is leading these group of people to provide a better future so once the toxic air is clear from the nuclear bombs going off from Y2K that humanity in America would have a fighting chance due to his expert survival skills that he has passed down to his people. There was only one thing that bugged him, and always sat in the back of his mind was the constant check-ins from the government every single day. It made him feel like he was being treated like a child with constant check-ins almost like they didn’t trust him? This didn’t sit well with Patrick, and one day after a sour conversation with a government official Patrick destroyed the communication device that the government used to communicate with them. Patrick wanted to prove that he was chosen for the right reason, and he decided it was time to cut all ties to the government so he may prove a point. Not only did he destroy the communication device, but also locked the bunker from the inside so no one from the outside world could enter the bunker, but not many people knew this. It was Draxon who saw Patrick locking the bunker down. His uncle sat him and Synn down knowing that the two would talk, and explained to them the entire situation. He told them not to tell anyone until he feels that it is the perfect time to do so. Draxon, and Synn have full trust within their Uncle, and agreed to what he has asked of them.
This remained a secret for quite some time, but then the residents of the bunker started asking questions after not hearing any updates from the government for a while. Out of the normal residents they weren’t quite sure what was happening, but rumors began flowing throughout the bunker. The Payne Family caught wind of the situation, and brought forth the rumors to their uncle. When Draxon, and Synn sat their Uncle Patrick to explain what they’ve heard, and when it happened Patrick was not happy he didn’t expect this to come so sudden, but with a couple of months left until the year 2000 he expected the news to come AFTER Y2K, but he knew it was time to come forward, and explain what has happened in the past few months. Patrick announced a meeting for all people of the bunker to attend so he can address the concerns that have risen in the community.
What you read next is the speech from Patrick Turner telling his people what is going on.
“Ladies, and Gentlemen I have heard your concerns on possible lack of communication of relaying information from The Government to you all. I think you all deserve the truth of what’s going on here. As a great leader will not lie to his own people, but before I explain, allow me to ask all of you a few simple questions… Have you ever been babyed before? *Patrick looked around the room gauging people’s reactions to the question* Have you ever been constantly monitored like you are not to be trusted? *Again Patrick pauses looking around the room and seeing a lot of people shaking their heads* I was hand picked for the position, and I am very thankful for that, but as I was doing my duties to help, and teach all of you, little did you all know I constantly had The Government breathing down my neck, and to be honest… It made me feel like I was not trusted, and they were concerned with my abilities to lead. So I did what was best for each, and every single one of you I intentionally broke our communication device with The Government, and sealed the bunker from the inside out so they do NOT interfere with my leadership. *Some people in the crowd seemed stunned by his statement* I believe I have done a great job leading you all thus far, and we shall continue to move onward, and upward. At this moment going forward you all will refer to me as The Commander as I will continue to teach you on how to fight, and survive so you all may prosper in the apocalypse, because let’s be honest with Y2K on the approach you will be faced where these skills will come into play, and the way I teach YOU will overcome every obstacle put before you. We will rise from the ground once this is all over, and become Wastelanders who travel the plains SURVIVING. *Patrick stops speaking for a moment and looks around seeing the room full of smiles* From my understanding there are other bunkers out there, but we will become the best WASTELANDERS that will thrive as we welcome the apocalypse with open arms…”
